and then outside of the body of christ... outside of the religious church, we have all these other religions... many of them are very zealous and they are wanting a relationship with god but they're going about it the wrong way, and what this says is that those who say that there's many paths unto god and it doesn't really matter whether you are a christian or a hindu or a buddhist or a muslim, or whatever, as long as you believe that there's a god and as long as you do your best and follow the...the commands and the instructions of that religions, that all paths lead to god, that is an absolute lie. paul is contradicting that right here... says, they have a zeal, but it's not according to knowledge and therefore, they would be rejected. jesus himself said in john, chapter 14, verse 6, i am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the father, but by me. jesus isn't a way. he is the way. he is the only way unto god the father. these people who say jesus was a great example. he showed the world how to turn the other cheek and how to love and how to lay his life down, and even other
